Intel's 9th Gen Core processors headed to laptops in Q2 2019

Intel's new 9th Gen desktop CPUs may have ditched integrated GPUs to take on AMD

Specifically at CES 2019, Intel said that the high performance CPU core would be a Sunny Cove core, with four Intel Atom processor-based cores working as the "small CPUs". This time Intel is promising that its first volume consumer processor on 10nm will be Ice Lake.

While specifics have not yet been announced, Intel's Gregory M. Bryant confirmed that the chips will be the first to ship with Gen11 integrated graphics - which Intel claims is "designed to break the 1 TFLOPS barrier", alongside built-in Thunderbolt 3, WiFi 6 (802.11ax) and DL boost (deep learning boost) support.

Intel's latest 5G and AI push is Project Athena, an innovation program with new industry specifications for laptops.

First laptops based on Intel's Project Athena platform will be released in the second of this year.

In October, Intel launched the first set of the 9th Gen Core desktop processors, including the Intel Core i9-9900K processor.

Intel also provided a sneak peek of a new client platform, code-named "Lakefield", that features a hybrid CPU architecture with Intel's new innovative Foveros 3D packaging technology.

With many mid-range and higher-end PCs still coming equipped with a dedicated graphics card, Intel's integrated chips often go to waste, so offering a range of cheaper, GPU-less processors may help Intel win back some of the value-oriented market segment that it's recently been losing to AMD.

Lakefield is expected to be in production this year. In order to drive that many execution units, Intel stated that they need 50-60 GB/s of memory bandwidth, which will come from LPDDR4X memory.

A Neural Network Processor for Training, code-named "Spring Crest", is also set to become available later this year.

Intel also announced three partnerships with various firms that will see its technology roll out across various computing scenarios. AI isn't just a major focus for edge computing or mobile AI applications - it's important to Intel in markets that range from data centers to ultra-mobile IoT devices and similar low-power products.

Intel's Lakefield motherboard prototype is an imaginative look at how 10nm chips could enable a new generation of devices whose computing guts like the CPU and wireless radios take up a much smaller percentage of interior space.

"This network SoC is meant to bring Intel architecture into wireless access base stations and allow more computing functions to be distributed out at the edge of the network", Intel said.

Intel disclosed it has started revenue shipments of its next-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors, code-named "Cascade Lake". Cascade Lake introduces support for Intel Optane DC persistent memory and Intel DL Boost, which is created to accelerate AI deep learning inference.
